Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity

                       Recommended for ages 10 & older (Grades 6 - 12) 

Length: Approx. 25 minutes

Audiences will be dazzled with striking, immersive animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies, and a simulated flight to a super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy.  

Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, this cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena, data generated by computer simulations, to bring the current science of black holes to the dome screen.
